My cousin and I went on this trail a couple of months back. We drove our car maybe a mile when we realized that there was no trailhead(Only reason for not giving it 5 stars. Need more markers). The climb was steep so I'd definitely rate it hard but the views were beautiful. It took us about 4.5 hours to complete the hike stops and all.

pretty easy trail. Be careful of the hunters though! They like to sneak in to the preserve part and shoot the ducks, geese and whatever. I have caught a few in there. Wouldn't be much for them to accidentally shoot one of my dogs or a person...too risky! the company's hands are tied and of course the officers are too far away to catch them. It's so unfortunate for the rest of us. Just be careful and very aware when you go out there.

Awesome awesome

A nice trail that you can see when driving on 80. This trail has signs stating it is closed due to construction on the flumes from November 15th, 2018 until March 2019. There was no one working on a Saturday, but I don't know if there is a potential of getting a ticket or towed if you decide to go for it.

This trail is amazing!! The bottom is really ugly due to fire debris, but mid way to the top its sooo beautiful. Perfect pine trees, bushes, fields, its soo beautiful. At the too you have a 360* view of the tahoe basin and reno! Its a spectacular view. This trail goes to the first meadow, which is so pretty! I cried when I saw it because it was so perfect with the small breeze on the wheat. This is where you should turn around and go back. Unless you want more...

I was so motivated to see the second field that I kept going, I was as pleased with the second field as much as the first. It was really really big and there is a makeshift wood dam in the middle which is wild to look at!

At this point I was debating whether to go back or just continue to Florinston, CA. I decided to continue, it was worth it. There were so many cool views and amazing fields. Most of it is downhill, and in either fields of bushes or birch forests. I did not regret it one bit. It was really really neat and I would have regretted it if I didn’t go.

Overall, it took me 11 hours for a 20 mile hike. I am experienced so it may take you longer depending on your skill, and of course the environment (snow, ice, etc...) It was pretty rocky and extremely isolated, I only saw one family in a ATV. Keep this in mind, I recommend bringing a partner, there are cyotes and mountainlions, although I did not encounter any, I saw alot of tracks. The trails are pretty spot on and exact. The fields by Florinston are very pretty and open. I highly recommend this trail, its one of the prettiest I have been on.

Prepare for a long hike, with about 3,000 in elevation gain. Be safe and take care!

It’s not suitable for hiking! It’s too steep. The path is not beautiful and there is not any sign in the path. The path is rocky and slippery.

Beautiful views! Bit of an incline at the beginning, but the trail levels out. My feet were feeling the hike at the end. The waterfall was lovely.

great loop

If you are looking for a long walk through the trees, culminating with a view up top, then this is for you. We did not see any other hikers but we did run into a few mountain bikers.

great trail, not too hard at all. At the very end you have the option to go over to Verdi Peak lookout. Really enjoyed myself however there were so many atvs and dirt bikes that it was a serious damper. May have been my fault for going on a Sunday but it was pretty unpleasant getting dusted by someone riding up behind me every ten minutes.

Easy hike. However if you’re carrying a baby on your back, I don’t recommend it. It’s a very rocky trail. But it does have nice views.

Time this trail accordingly as it will be covered in snow during winter/spring. This is my go to place for hiking. Its a nice hike with shaded trees. There is a nice resting spot next to a waterfall. The views are stunning looking over Reno and of course Lake Tahoe. Recommend doing this hike in light summer/fall for the best weather.

Great hike with great views. The last mile is a bit of a climb but well worth it.

Gotta love loop hikes! Even without the trip to the summit this is an excellent hike. Take the brand-new Tahoe Rim Trail section from the top of the waterfall for an added workout (instead of dropping into the valley before getting to the junction that leads to the top of Mt. Rose) (on this map).
Also, be aware that there is a new cut-off from the "Rest Stop to Relay" trail to the Relay Peak Trail at about .7 miles from the trailhead. (NOT on this map, or the one at the trailhead)). You'll still get where you're going, but it's a little confusing.

great day hike with the pup! lots of traffic but all friendly people!

Great views; easy hike

Love it, slow and steady incline. Wide open space after the creek. This trail felt different than anything I’ve been on recently.... just wish I would’ve got here earlier in the season to see all the aspen leaves on the trees!!! Would recommend doing it in late September / early October to see the beautiful colors!

my pup and i did this hike, definitely not easy but so worth the views at the top. no trail head but reviews before helped in getting there. the one thing i missed was at the top before the peak, theres stacked rocks on your right side that shows the trail to the peak. i missed it and had to back track. was to busy admiring the views i had. the hike for sure gives you a work out, but can't say enough how worth it for the view.

Easy trail with beautiful views. Took us 2.5 hours, a little less

This is a fabulous hike! Steep incline to begin, then back up at the end! You cross the creek three times (: My pup loved. Would definitely do again!

Great quick lil loop to walk your pup! Did this at sunset, beautiful! Love the lil ascent to get your heart pumping!! No trees/shade, cool with me though. Would recommend, especially at sunset!

Great hike about 4 hours total. There is no trailhead. You hike along a water tank access road and pick up the trail from there. There are some steep inclines with loose ground so wear shoes with grip. Bring plenty of water. About a third of the way up, there is a beautiful ridge/meadow ride that to the peak.

Beautiful hike with panoramic views of Lake Tahoe at every turn. On this day it was pretty windy It had to be at least 25 mph winds I felt like I was gonna blow away craziest wind I’ve experienced

Is a great place I like.to walk there

Started at thomas creek and did the 7 mile loop to white creek trail. Thomas Creek is good for all ages. There were hikers, walkers, bikers and dogs. Up to Dry Pond has switchbacks to help with elevation gain. Colors and creeks were gorgeous.

10-05-18. Short and easy. Pretty canyon. Not much shade, could get hot quickly depending on time of day or time of year you go. Neat petroglyphs.

Wow! Fabulous trail ride. A lot of DG and does technical with the large boulders. We are not able to get to Rock Lake. Boulders made it impossible to pass safely with our horses.
My horse did fine without shoes.
Narrow at points with steep drop offs lasting short distances. First time taking my young mare on a more technical ride, she did fine. There is quite a bit of elevation hike, but we stopped and tested as needed. Quite a few hikers, not bad. Parking adequate.
